State of the State precedes Gov. John Kasich's book on political unity

April 4, 2017: Here's what to expect.

SANDUSKY, Ohio -- Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is preparing to deliver his State of the State speech just weeks before the expected release of a new book reflecting on his experiences in the contentious 2016 presidential election.

Past governors have used their speeches to reveal or defend their budgets, but Kasich's budget was introduced nearly two months ago, making that theme unlikely.

Kasich's book, "Two Paths," expands on a campaign speech in which he warned against "vicious" campaign tactics as undignified and playing on hate and fear. He says Americans need to find common ground to tackle society's big challenges.
